Pediatric Hospital and Intensive Care Unit Capacity in Regional Disasters: Expanding Capacity by Altering Standards of Care

Kanter, R.K. and Moran, J.R. (2007). Pediatric Hospital and Intensive Care Unit Capacity in Regional Disasters: Expanding Capacity by Altering Standards of Care. (Abstract only.) Pediatrics. 119(1):94-100.

The authors used a simulation to determine how altered standards of care during a large-scale emergency or disaster could expand pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) beds and non-ICU beds. Modeling showed that altered standards could increase capacity, but that ICU beds would still be insufficient during large disasters.
